Without fixing this problem, PC gaming is at risk. Already people are beginning to find the hobby too expensive and being forced out.
Everyone should have access to fun, and it shouldn't be used by individuals to make quick money.
Many use gaming as a means of having good mental health and catching up with friends.
This leads to supply issues, which in turn drives up prices. These prices set a precedent with suppliers, to sell their goods for more in future generations.
Left unchecked, our electronics will continue to increase in cost at a rate we've never seen, leaving normal buyers to foot the bill while scalpers cash in on every electronic item.
We saw this before with ticket sales, which has now been regulated and banned by the Government making it a criminal offence which killed the entire market overnight.
Unfortunately consumer electronic goods are not affected by this law. We want this change this.
Continue with price rises, fighting to purchase products you want. Eventually you will be unable to afford things you would have.
Vote with your feet. Stop your spending and fueling of the price rises. Do you need to spend against the odds to have the item? Question the value.
